Novels aren’t the only place where written treasures are hidden in the narrative. Some are revealed in the chapters of a novella or the paragraphs of a short story. My walking buddies and I decided to make a range of written material available to other hikers who frequent the Buffalo Creek Preserve and Trail.
The story this month was written by Dan Upton, Titled, " A Message Meant To Be Shared."
About Dan Upton.. Dan retired from Bridgestone-Firestone after thirty years. He and his wife Sharon live in Mount Pleasant. Devout Christians they are active in their local church. Dan was the first of the Trail Tales hikers to discover the joy of sharing stories that have a special meaning in life. Dan and Sharon have two children and seven grandchildren.
Dan is willing to provide a plaque to anyone who needs a reminder that Paradise is available just for the asking. For more information about how to obtain a plaque contact Dan.

We dedicated a Little Free Library at the trail head and committed to supplying a short story each month to a local paper, the Senior Savvy. The stories appear in a column - Trail Tales. PDF versions of the stories can be acquired by way of this blog.
